The Internal Control Institute Zimbabwe™ (ICIZ) was the first such organization, in Zimbabwe, specifically organized with the expressed purpose of concentrating on and establishing the internal control profession. The process of establishing ICIZ began years ago. Preparation for its professional certification programs provides individuals with the knowledge and expertise to detect and avoid such infractions in organizations.
The Internal Control Institute (ICI) is the first organization in the world to promote and develop the purpose of the internal control profession. The process of setting up the ICI began many years before the emergence of internal control violations at institutions such as Enron, WorldCom, and Global Crossing, which led to the removal of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the United States.

About Internal Control Profession
The concept of internal control is a concept that goes back to the beginning of 1900's. This journey, which started with financial controls, gained a different dimension with the COSO Internal Control Integrated Framework introduced by COSO in 1992. This document was revised in 2013 with regard to contemporary business practices and developments. (more)
